What's for Dinner?: Sweet & Sour Chicken, Pork or Shrimp

This comes from Ryan's side of the family although I've changed some of the amounts and ingredients as not to reveal the secret family recipe.

Sweet & Sour Chicken, Pork or Shrimp

2 lb chicken or pork strips OR peeled, uncooked shrimp
garlic salt
3-4 beaten eggs (I used egg beaters)
2 C flour
oil for frying
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C vinegar
6 T catsup
2 T soy sauce or Brigg's Amino
1 t salt
1/4 C water

Heat oil in skillet.
Season the meat with garlic salt, salt and pepper.
Dip into beaten eggs, then coat with flour.
Cook until brown on both sides.
Meanwhile, whisk together 1/2 C sugar, 1/2 C vinegar, 6 T catsup, 2 T soy sauce or Brigg's Amino, 1 t salt and 1/4 C water.
Drain meat on paper towels then place into baking dish.
Pour mixture over the meat.
Bake for 30 min on 350 degrees turning once 10-15 min in.

I served it over white rice.
